A Support Center for Families

About the service

When a person experiences a mental health crisis, a supportive environment is an essential factor in his recovery process. As in any medical condition and often even more so, when dealing with a mental health disorder, the person cannot move forward without assistance from family members. However, it is important to remember that especially in such circumstances, family members themselves are coping with difficulty: feelings such as shame and guilt arise due to the situation and often, lack of knowledge leads to feelings of confusion and helplessness and an overall sense of being unequipped to handle the challenge.

This understanding, along with Bayit Cham's extensive knowledge and experience in all areas of mental health treatment, led us to establish a special center to guide and support family members. At the T'chelet (Azure) Family Center we provide families with group and individual support and hold workshops and lectures on a variety of topics dealing with their loved one's illness.

The center's staff includes experienced therapists with expertise in family therapy and a lawyer who specializes in establishing rights to disability benefits. An integral staff member includes someone who himself has been coping for years with a family member who struggles with mental illness, knows the families' and patients' needs from personal experience and profoundly understands the various sensitivities. All treatment at T'chelet is given with the greatest sensitivity, with an understanding of the cultural environment and with optimal adaptation to the needs of the family.
